This paper will describe High-performance Element Processing Architecture as a basis for large array radar systems, enabling system designers to increase levels of digitization by using open standards based hardware.
High Performance, Rugged GPGPUs Enable UAVs to Fly Faster/Higher While Mapping Terrain with Synthetic Aperture RADAR (SAR)
Small light-weight UAVs SAR have always been a compromise between size, weight, and power, with capability and real-time actionable intelligence. Traditional digital signal processing technologies processing capability struggles to meet small light weight UAV SAR mission requirements in...
The Curtiss-Wright High Definition (HD) Video Management System (VMS) is designed to control, distribute, record and display video for optimal surveillance and public safety mission performance.
CPU modules have been the primary directly connected hosts on most military/aerospace Ethernet networks, regardless of the type of data being transmitted. In some cases CPUs are being used as a networking front end for data flows that are ultimately processed using other technologies...
Application Note: Connecting Off-Board Devices to Curtiss-Wright 1000Base-X SerDes Ethernet Switches
Curtiss-Wright Ethernet switches and routers provides several different types of physical interfaces for Ethernet ports. This application note outlines how to use 1000Base-X, also known as the "SerDes"interface, interfaces with off-board devices (specifically PHY devices) to convert...
Application Note: Benefits and Implementation of Network Multicast in Embedded Computing Architectures
Network multicast is one of these networking capabilities that have been proven extremely useful in these new network-centric embedded military designs.
This paper examines the design of such an analog data acquisition card with generic channels, each of which can be configured to accept any analog sensor and make any analog measurement. It investigates what the trade-offs are in terms of performance, functionality and channel count.
Curtiss-Wright has developed an open-standard approach to low latency digital video distribution, incorporating VICTORY specifications and other open standards, including Motion JPEG 2000.
The paper presents definitions for Real Time, traditional perceptions of Ethernet for real-time usage, solutions for real time, a comparison to MIL-STD-1553, and suggestions for additional specifications to include in VICTORY.
Mezzanine carrier cards have been used in system designs for many years, and will continue to play an integral part, especially as the performance of processor cards continue to increase in the future. This white paper will discuss the many uses of carrier cards designed specifically...
